Christmas in July

It was a perfect summer day. The breeze was just right, the weather was sunny and the temperature was in the 70's. As it got dark Hebby came over and we were thinking of something to do. So we thought lets bake something! We decided to bake cookies so we looked in the index of the Joy of Cooking and found tons of varieties of cookies! We finally decided on not the typical summer dessert but Gingerbread Cookies! Oh yeah! Bring on the Christmas spirit, and so we did. We turned on the Christmas music, got out the flour and vanilla etc...and baked away! It was really weird to almost feel like it was Christmas. It's amazing how powerful music can be to put you in the Christmas spirit. Maybe I should have Christmas music on more often since it makes me so happy. I was quickly reminded when I stepped outside to feel the warm breeze and the humid blanket covering me that it wasn't Christmas and that I am happy that it is summer but it was fun pretending. So here's to Christmas in July.
